New details on Windows Phone-based LG Miracle

Last December, images leaked out on the Internet that seemed to confirm that LG was working on a new smartphone based on Microsoft's Windows Phone OS. Today, PocketNow.com has posted up more information about this upcoming LG smartphone. While the previous leak called the phone the LG Fantasy, it has now apparently been renamed as the LG Miracle.

The phone will reportedly have a NOVA-based four-inch WVGA display, along with a 1 GHz single core Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm, 8 GB of storage, a 720p five megapixel rear camera, and a VGA front facing camera. The article also claims that the LG Miracle might even have some kind of NFC tag-reading capabilities. That's a feature that is not supposed to be supported by Windows Phone 7.5 and there's no word on how LG will work that feature into the Miracle.

The article claims that LG will first announce the LG Miracle at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain later in February followed by a release later this spring. This will likely be the first Windows Phone 7.5-based device released by LG following in the footsteps of companies like Samsung, HTC and of course Nokia with its Lumia line of smartphones.

I wish LG would add back in the 120 FPS slow motion video recording they had in the LG Viewty & LG Secret. I had many fun times recording stuff in slow motion with those cameras - nearly everything looks amazing in slow motion

The Quantum doesn't look that bad. Love the physical keyboard - the only thing I miss with my Omnia 7. Shame I'll never touch another LG phone after the horrors my wife experienced with them. It's Samsung all the way from now on.

Windows Phone's greatest success became apparent to me yesterday as a friend if mine with some large sausage fingers was typing using the on screen keyboard in portrait on an LG Quantum.

He confessed to using the autocomplete bar and admitted the autocorrect was more than adequate to compensate for the natural offset.

He was barely aware when be relied on the physical keyboard for input.

everyone needs to give a go on the windows phone on screen keyboard.

I love the autocomplete / autocorrecting feature and find myself not needing to be as accurate with my typing as I was before, but; there is still the desire to have a physical keyboard. While I can get by with touch typing, I prefer the tactility and increased speed that comes with using a keyboard. It's just me getting old I guess.

Still a great example of why the platform is so great. All the flexibility the OEMs choose to offer.

Preaching to the choir mate.

Now if only Samsung offered a Windows Phone with a slider keyboard I'd be in heaven. Maybe when the new refresh comes out with WP8 with it's expanded form factors we'll see it happen.

thats not ugly. Its a fine looking set. Its just the screen is photoshopped pretty bad. We have to wait till we get live shots of it.

And I think NFC support is there in Mango. I dont know if im making this up or not coz i think i read it somewhere.

I believe it's a planned addition in Tango. Though I too could be making that up... LOL

I seem to recall a lot of "Joe Belfiore confirmes NO NFC support for Mango" in the headlines of various sites when Mango launch was relevant.

Not a bad looking phone. I'm always happy to see new Windows Phones coming out (Though probably not to Verizon I'm assuming... )

Complain to the Phandroids running your phone company.
